Oh, happy day! Peonies are back at my local grocery. I like to buy them when they are still a little brown and in tight little balls that could fit in the palm of a small child. A bit of a waiting game, I like to guess how many days until they blossom and show off their sunburst centers. But it may be their delicious scent that holds them high in my esteem. I also have a weakness for tulips, Gerber daisies, and hydrangea. But peonies? I think they're the cat's meow.
What's your favorite bloom?
